During biotinylation biotin is attached to macromolecules or proteins. Biotinylated proteins can, due to the high specifity of biotin-avidin interaction, be used to detect and/ or purify proteins. Citeq has developed house dust mite related biotinylated proteins. These biotinylated proteins include D. pteronyssinus (HDM) extractand the natural purified Der p 1 protein and Der p 2 protein. Biotinylated proteins can be applicated in many protein assays. These protein assays include for example western blot analysis, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS)/ flow cytometry and enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA).
On this page you can read more about biotinylation and the protocol for our biotinylated proteins.
